The Princess Anne Hotel, located in Asheville North Carolina, is hosting their first annual Golden Girls Getaway event January 14-16, 2023.
The weekend will feature The Golden Gays™ the premier Golden Girls Drag Troupe. The Golden Gays™ are highly regarded as “the best in their field”, elevating The Golden Girls drag legacy to the next level by creating one-of-a-kind original musical parody adventures - paying tribute to the show that fans know and love, as well as highlighting the talents of the cast. The show stars Christopher Eklund as Blanche, Gerry Mastrolia as Rose, and Jason B. Schmidt as Dorothy. Their tight three-party harmonies, innovative choreography and camp direction bring each production to the next level.
For over 5 years, the Golden Gays™ have been entertaining audiences. From their surprise performance at Rue LaRue Cafe (formerly in Washington Heights, New York City) to being the featured entertainment at the first Golden Girls Convention in Chicago this year, they have been featured on CNN, in the New York Times, and the Associated Press. They've been the headline entertainment on the Golden Fans at Sea Cruise since 2020 and have been seen at RuPaul's DragCon and ComicCon. Having toured throughout the United States these past 5 years, The Golden Gays™ have their sights set on reaching more cities than ever in 2023.

Sophia Petrillo has gone missing! Your favorite pals and confidants Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose must travel down the road and back again across America to find her. Could she be at the Rusty Anchor? Or right in their kitchen on Richmond Street? Through a series of hilarious “hot flashbacks,” these hip old grannies take you on a musical journey through The Golden Girls’ most memorable moments to find their Ma! Lucky audience members may even have a chance to make their stage debut with the bosom buddies and become the next #TokenSophia. Live singing! Dancing! Bears! Oh My! Toto, we’re not in Miami anymore, sugar.
“The Golden Gays™ always make me laugh. Their ability to improv is extraordinary, which means you never know what’s going to come out of their mouths, even if you see their shows multiple times! They are a fabulously funny troupe that lovingly connects you to your favorite foursome!”
